Resources For Members
The idea behind this page is to inform you of what you need to know that’s not in the categories of the other other sections – some of those confusing abbreviations, for example, and what they mean. Some of this will be useful early in your time with Toastmasters, some later on – but all will be useful in some way.
Thanks to Rose Oosthuysen and Shane Fenton for researching and pulling together the starting point for this resource list.

Documents for Members
This is a digest of links to articles grouped into various categories. Its objectives are to cover areas where a large number of questions have been asked
The official handbook of club leadership and a great reference for leadership in general
This workbook has been designed to help you develop your leadership knowledge. The only resource on this site from an international design team.
There are many variations on this. This one is useful because it shows a one-page view (for all paths) of what any given path requires you to do. The progress chart is from a club perspective.
Note the project map shows the original set of fundamentals (level 1) projects.
When you work several paths at once, you need to keep track of what you’ve done, what you uploaded, what evaluations are outstanding, and so on. One way is to use a personal tracker, with a sheet for each path. [Webmaster’s note: I learned this after clearing my desk following a long project – completed three levels with the evaluation forms I had stored there.]Presentation Mastery is set out as an example. To set up a new path, use the project list from either the Pathways learning page (Paths and Projects section) or District 4’s excellent summary as a starting point to change what you have duplicated from your previous path.
